Hello Sumite nation! I would like to admit that I've been somewhat discouraged lately. The undercurrent of hatred and divisiveness is, at times, too much for this tiny brunette. During these moments of discouragement the Lord is quick to renew my strength if I remember to focus on his presence. I keep a stack of encouraging verses tacked to the wall of my cubicle for moments like these. I thumb through them and land on a bit of encouragement from Joshua 1:9, "This is my command - be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the Lord your God is with you wherever you go." Or this one from Psalm 42:5-6, "Why am I discouraged? Why is my heart so sad? I will put my hope in God! I will praise him again - my Savior and my God! Now I am deeply discouraged, but I will remember you - even from distant Mount Hermon, the source of the Jordan, from the land of Mount Mizar." And now one from the mouth of Jesus in Mark 4:39 "Then He arose and rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, Peace, be still!" And the wind ceases and there was great calm." Please join me in prayer:
Gracious Father, we lift our weary hearts to you and praise the glory of your name. You are the mighty king, the alpha and omega, the source of all existence. You are far beyond my comprehension, deeper than the depths of the greatest ocean. In these moments of worship, I can feel Jesus say PEACE BE STILL and suddenly everything stops then find myself in the stillness of your presence. You remind us that we are sons and daughters of the Most High, held safely in the palm of your hand. I ask you to renew our strength again today. Set our feet upon the foundation of your written word and encourage our souls in ways that we cannot begin to imagine. Now we look to those who have been affected by the numerous natural disasters. Father, please provide for their every need and send encouragement through the works of your children. Please provide relief and comfort. Mighty God, we pray and declare this things in the name of Jesus Christ, amen!
